I had a Centrx 51cm television its picture tube blew under one year, so
they replaced it with a brand new one. Great, but now have just realised
that it hasn't got an headphone jack socket at the front like the old
one. Went to The Goode Guys and they said no Centrex tv's had headphone
sockets, this puzzled me so I checked the original book and it has a
picture of the socket. Can anyone shed anymore light on this am I just
seeing things and going senile or what.
There are products for the hearing-impaired which do exactly this
function, using either the headphone socket or AV outputs (audio only,
of course!) to send tot he listener via FM radio, with a nice little
receiver and headphones for them to wear. Much more convenient than a
trailing lead. My MIL uses one and is quite happy with it (she's made a
habit lately of pretending to be listening to a conversation while
actually listening to one of the music stations off the Sky box!).
For what it's worth, we have two Sony units that plug into the audio output
of the TV and broadcast via Infra red to the headphones, which use one AA
They are excellent.
The Product Number is TMR IF 130
They cost about $85 from our local country Retravision.
The headphones have their own volume control.
